Trying to find the perfect Back-to-School activity can be tiresome, but the "I am a..." activity is a simple and quick activity that kids can create as they find their desks and/or when waiting for others to finish up their work. This "getting-to-know-you" activity has students filling in the "I" with adjectives, verbs, etc... that describe themselves. Each describing word can be in different colors or styles. Once students have completed the activity, take the time for a share-aloud where each students has the opportunity to describe themselves. You can even use this activity in conjunction with Meet the Teacher Night, where the "I am a..." worksheet is placed on each individual's desk without their name and the parents can try to locate which "I am a..." is their own child. This also could be turned into a bulletin board.
